Science and Technology Education Standards for Treehouse Building

Treehouse building connects biocience, technology, and inquiry learning. Conducting scientific investigations and publishing the results as treehouses matches well with the shift in the national science standards from emphasizing specific knowledge and practices to a focus on the process of scientific inquiry and the sharing and applying of science knowledge beyond the confines of the classroom. Treehouse building meets every national technology standard, and has the flexibility to meet a variety of science content standards, depending on the needs of the teachers and learners.
